Entries are judged by community judge panel and we also hold a peoples choice award by offering tastings to market goers. The Rhubarb Challenge invites those who want to share their culinary talents and love for rhubarb by entering their most scrumptious rhubarb masterpieces. Prizes will be awarded in three categories; sweets, savory, and condiments. Any dish that includes rhubarb in the recipe is welcome. Join the challenge or just come to taste the unique creations and check out our wonderful market vendors. Tasting plates and good old rhubarb fun is available to all. Participants must drop of entries at 9am on June 30th. Entries will be judged on presentation, overall smell and taste, and the story behind the recipe.

The Douglas Farmers Market is a wonderful weekly farmers market held on the grounds of the historic E.N. Jenckes Store in downtown Douglas. The perfect stop on a Summer Saturday morning to cross paths with others from the community and get your local produce and other artisan goods. The market is excited to welcome back the local vegetables, seasonal fruits, fresh eggs, a local artisan cheese maker, our artisan braker, a local coffee roaster, alpaca farmers, local honey, an artisan soap and more.
We are still welcoming new vendors of any kind so if you grow it, make it or bake it, we would love to have you. The market will be open every Saturday morning from 9-12 through October. Accepting applications for vendors. Reserve your space today.
